Former Trump aide Will Russell, who was reportedly with Trump on Jan 6., is expected to appear Thursday before the grand jury in Washington. Russell was subpoenaed by the grand jury last year.
According to The Hill, Russell served in the White House as a special assistant to the former president and the deputy director of presidential advance operations and also continued working with Trump after he left office.
Earlier this week, Trump revealed that special counsel Jack Smith informed him that he was a target of the investigation looking into the efforts to overturn the 2020 election, a signal that Trump’s third indictment is imminent.
The grand jury is expected to meet Thursday, which is also the deadline for Trump to appear before the grand jury, which he is not expected to do.
Other White House aides including Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Hope Hicks have also reportedly met with the grand jury.
